Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) We report the design of a new precursor having three branching disiloxane units capable of forming 3D mesostructures with a cubic Pm-3n and its orthorhombic and tetragonal variants Cmmm and P4 2/mnm, in addition to a conventional 2D hexagonal (p6mm) mesostructure, thus creating a novel research area of mesostructural design in silica-organic nanohybrid materials.
